So who has the Friday feeling? I’m not quite there yet, very tired today and I had to go to a hospital appointment this afternoon. Thought I would get on with my weekly favourites to cheer myself up a little!
I went into Superdrug on Wednesday and the eyeshadow palette I have been waiting for was finally back in stock! The MakeUp Revolution Flawless 3 Resurrection Palette is a beaut and I have heard is a great dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. I was so pleased to be able to get my hands on one and my eyeshadow palette collection is now well rounded off (at least for now!). They are super value for money too at only £8!
I ended up in one of my other favourite shops, Primark, while in town too. Found a few new tops, some more amazing outside lights for the garden, fairy lights for around my bedroom mirror and picked up some face wipes. The face wipes smell just like some of the antibiotic medicine I used to get as a child and I love it! I take off my makeup at night with my Simple Cleansing Oil that I’ve mentioned before and then a facial wash. I then only need to use these wipes or do a facial wash in the morning when I get up before moisturising and applying makeup. I also managed to pick up some bits for the boys for the holiday. Mostly Leo, as he has had another growth spurt! I find Primark perfect for the kids as they grow so fast and I love it for me too. The prices are great and it means I can give my wardrobe a little overhaul every now and again without spending a fortune!
Next up is sunshine! Been absolutely loving the weather this week, been nice to bring out the Summer clothes for me and the boys and getting more fresh air. My hair is feeling a little more frazzled though…if anyone can recommend a good shampoo and conditioner for blonde hair I’m looking for new ones to try!
Me and Ste watched the new Power Rangers movie a couple of nights again. All I can say is wow! Totally what I wanted from the movie after being a huge Mighty Morphine Power Rangers fan when I was younger! The new suits, zords and everything looked amazing. Do you remember the old scenes where they used toys to make it look like they were destroying the city?! And yes…a part of me still wants to be the pink ranger! I was also really pleased to see one of the Power Rangers was autistic. It’s a great way of helping young kids with autism understand that they are all superheroes and they can do anything they want! It will also help spread much needed awareness of the condition which is often poorly understood I find.
And lastly I want to say how proud I am of how my ‘Dressing With An Ostomy’ week has gone on my blog. I’ve had lots of lovely responses and interaction. Amazing and brave people sending over photos for me to use. I hope it’s helped some people. I know I’ve been quite upset talking to some people and seeing how badly their confidence about this issue has been knocked. Some people struggle so much that they barely leave the house. I hope seeing all these ostomates rocking their outfits, whatever they choose to wear and keeping a sense of their own style about it the whole time inspires people that having an ostomy does not have to affect how you dress and diminish your clothing choices. I have really enjoyed the idea of having a themed week too so may do this again at some point! Any ideas for themes please let me know in the comments or by messaging me!
That’s all for this week, thankyou to everyone for reading all week and interacting through my different social media outlets. Remember you can follow me on
